During the Google I/O developer conference in San Francisco, Google and Samsung announced that attendees would receive free Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet PC, something that made many of them rejoice.
This tablet PC is a great device, packing a powerful application processor inside and running under Google's Android 3.0 Honeycomb operating system.
Following the attendees at Google I/O
, mobile phone users in Europe should receive the tablet as of June 8, just as the company announced a few months ago when unveiling the device.
However, it seems that users in the United States would also have the opportunity to enjoy the capabilities of this device in the not too far future, as Verizon Wireless is gearing up to release it.Rumor
has it that Big Red would aim at adding two different flavors of the 10.1-inch tablet to its offering, one dressed up in black, and another one painted white.
Nothing was officially unveiled on this for the time being, but the device might have been just spotted in Verizon's systems, it seems.
The device seen there sports model number of SCH-I905, and the guys over at Droid-life suggest that this could not be another anything else than a Samsung device.
Moreover, the listing mentions a 4G tablet PC than runs under Google's Android 3.0 Honeycomb platform
When connecting all the dots, it becomes clear that Bug Red is gearing up for the release of a Samsung tablet PC, one that already received the necessary WiFi Alliance approvals.
No addition details on the matter emerged for the time being, but there are great chances that the said device would indeed prove to be the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet.
Of course, chances are that Verizon would plan on launching the smaller Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 device
on its airwaves, which was already confirmed with LTE capabilities for Nordic countries, but this could be only a wild guess in the end.
However, it might all be unveiled before the end of this month, as Samsung has press event set for May 26th, where it might announce plans for the release of this device.
